NIA court releases Kashmiri student arrested in Jalandhar attack case

New Delhi, Apr 23: The National Investigating Agency (NIA) has failed to produce evidence against a Kashmiri student in Jalandhar attack case, prompting the court to release him, a national daily reported on Tuesday.
Danish Rehman Sofi was arrested in October last year for his alleged involvement in Jalandhar attack case.
Reportedly, the Punjab and Jammu and Kashmir police had claimed to have busted a militant module in Jalandhar in October 2018 by arresting some Kashmiri students, who were allegedly linked to the Al-Qaida offshoot Ansar Ghazwat-ul-Hind (AGH).
The police had also claimed to have recovered two weapons, including an assault rifle, and some explosives from their possession. The remaining students who were arrested included Yusuf Rafiq Bhatt, Zahid Gulzar, Muhammad Idris Shah alias Nadeem and Sohail Ahmed Bhatt.
The students were nabbed from the hostel of an engineering institute at Shahpur, Jalandhar.
